Embark Upon An Educational Spring Break While Independent Living In St. Petersburg, Florida

When we were kids, spring break typically meant a welcome reprieve from schoolbooks and studies. And, yes, that was always fun! But as we grow up, we tend to fall back in love with learning — and at our destination for independent living in St. Petersburg, Florida, there are plenty of ways to do embrace that passion.

This season, why not think about taking a “reverse” spring break — that is, dedicate some time specifically to studying, learning, or picking up a new interest or hobby? Keep reading to see some of our favorite ways to enjoy an educational staycation at Westminster Shores.

Take A Class

One of the most obvious ways to prioritize learning in your life is with a college course! At Westminster Shores, our partnership with Eckerd College and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute gives your residents access to unparalleled educational opportunities close to home. Just a few of the offerings residents have enjoyed include History by Hollywood, Current Issues in Constitutional Law, The Transformation of Our St. Petersburg Community, and Radio Astronomy.

As you can see, there’s a lot to choose from — so whether your interest is arts, STEM, or local history, there’s something for every kind of learner.

Hang Out At The Westminster Shores Library & Computer Center

Even if you’re not studying up for a specific course, being in an educational environment can help get you into the learning mindset. That’s the idea behind Westminster Shore’s library and computer center, an on-site destination where you can spend leisurely time reading up on, well, just about anything you can imagine!

Take Yourself On A Tour Of The Community

Just like guided walking tours help you get to know museums and new cities, you can take the same approach with your daily stroll at Westminster Shores! Whether you turn your attention toward our gorgeous shorebirds, local history, or plant-lined walking paths, there’s always something new to discover wherever you may roam. And our staff is always more than happy to help give you fun tidbits and did-you-know facts about this community we call “home.” Plus, the very act of getting out and exploring encourages you to be curious — an essential pillar of the lifelong learning process.

Explore The City’s Offerings, Too

Interested in exploring the city beyond Westminster Shores? There’s a lot to explore while out and about in the greater St. Petersburg community, too! For example, the local parks and recreation department has a handy online tool for finding classes related to everything from painting to pottery and beyond. There’s also a host of educational day trips you can embark upon, too! The bottom line? Educational opportunities — even the ones that are disguised as, well, pure fun — abound in and around Westminster Shores and the greater St. Petersburg community. And they’re waiting for you!

There’s no shortage of fun, engaging ways to expand your educational horizons at Westminster Shores — this spring “break” and all year long! We hope that today’s guide helps connect you to a learning opportunity you truly love.
